RPO/Shelley, Cadogan Hall: SIBELIUS: Violin Concerto

“Chloë Hanslip was movingly intense from the outset – passionate, attacking and creating an almost breathless timelessness…there was a great attack in the third movement, with driving rhythms and a gutsy Hanslip soaring through the complex lines relentlessly and with great bravado and precision”

BBC Proms: BBCNOW/van Steen BERKELEY Violin Concerto - World Premiere

“Hanslip takes up the raw electric violin for the finale, a ferocious outpouring of rage and grief, though a quiet coda in which she reverts to the standard instrument brings the work to a close in a mood of resignation. Her performance can only be described as a tour de force.”

                                                                                                                                                        The Guardian, 28 July 2016

“But there’s nothing indeterminate about Berkeley’s fiercely personal Violin Concerto. Premiered the following night by BBCNOW and soloist Chloë Hanslip…With Hanslip as passionate, eloquent advocate the work hit hard, daring to make death beautiful in music whose songs strove constantly against the rumbling disagreements on timpani and tabla.”

                                                                                                                                                  The Independent, 28 July 2016

"Hanslip’s poetic touch kept every note she played alive and fresh whatever the violin, acoustic or electric"

                                                                                                                                                            The Times 29 July 2016

"Chloë Hanslip was an inspired choice to give the first performance. She demonstrated the emotional intensity that Berkeley was looking for, with a sweetness of tone and a sharpness that was crucial"

BBC NOW/Stern: ADAMS Dharma at Big Sur

“Far from finding it unsettling to be taken out of a comfortable parameter into a whole new aural zone, this audience was transported first by soloist Chloë Hanslip’s impassioned lyricism, and then by its ever-more ecstatic indulgence.”

                                                                                                                                                      The Guardian, 15 April 2016

Prague Symphony Orchestra/Inkinen: DVORAK Violin Concerto No 1

“Her ravishing legato phrasing in the Larghetto movement was matched by the exquisitely shaded passages for solo clarinet, bassoon and French horn. Hanslip conveys the grandeur of this concerto without ever imposing herself on the music.”

                                       Ilkley Gazette and Wharfedale & Aireborough Observer, November 2015

“Hanslip enjoyed a beautiful duet with the bassoons and was on top form in the finale laced with rumbustious tunes, building to one of Dvořák’s best endings.”

                                                                                                                                       The Stratford Herald, 3 December 2015

Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi/Schuldt: GOLDMARK Violin Concerto No 1

“There was something curiously English in Chloë Hanslip’s ripe sound….invested with profound poignancy. Hanslip coursed through the endless opening melody with joined-up eloquence, remoulding the sound in a magnification of the passage’s markings from cantabile to espressivo to dolce. A highly communicative player, Hanslip swayed her body during orchestral interludes and glanced behind at players to coordinate entries. In full flow she sang through the trills and leaping tritons with a boundless lyricism, mimicking an all-time tenor great with perfect breathe control. It was a performance remarkable for the depth of character on show. Hanslip emerged from the calm and flowered into quaver melodies producing a sound that was at once endlessly searching and arresting for its simplicity”

                                                                                                                                                   Bachtrack, 28 September 2015

“The three movement Goldmark concerto starts simply and then gradually sets off into an increasing whirlwind. Chloë Hanslip’s strength of character was evidently displayed as she played scales with a fast and formidable virtuosity, receiving rapturous applause from the audience for a piece little known to most”

                                                                                                                                                    Recensito, 28 September 2015
